Summer Triangle is made up of the stars Vega, Deneb, and Altair.
Each of those stars is part of a separate constellation. Vega is
part of Lyra "the Lyre", which can be found in the upper right of
this image. Can you find the triangle and parallelogram that form
Lyra? Deneb means "tail" in Arabic, because it represents
the tail of Cygnus "the Swam" (also known at the Northern
Cross). Altair is part of the constellation Aquila "the
Eagle", which is only partly visible in this image. The small
constellations Vulpecula and Sagitta are located inside the Summer
Triangle. Delphinus "the Dolphin" is in the lower left portion of
the image. The Great Rift divides this section of the Milky Way
in two. Many deep sky objects are visible in this photograph to
say the least. It would take a full article to describe them
all! This imaged placed first in the Wide Field category at NIAG
